Mother’s Broth is a product I offer for free with the encapsulation process. It is, in short, the steaming water used to steam the placenta. So why would I save this and why do I offer it to moms? Because it is amazing.
Have you ever steamed broccoli? Most of you probably have. When you steam the broccoli a portion of the nutrients will transfer to the steaming water. This is one of the reasons vegatable broth, chicken stock and other broths are so good for you and are often saved to make soups or water plants. The same is the case with the steaming water used to steam the placenta.
Encapsulated placenta has many benefits including topical use. A placenta capsule can be opened and mixed with a natural oil to be applied directly to the skin. It is great for diaper rash, eczema, dry skin, bruises and many other skin problems. As with placenta capsule ingestion, placenta should not be used topically on any virus or bacterial infections.
Placenta encapsulation usually is completed by the end of the second day postpartum depending on the time of the birth, getting the placenta home, and when the encpauslation specialist can arrive. The dehydration period takes at least eight hours and the encapsulation process averages around three hours. (For more information on the encapsulation process click here.) This can be quite a long time for a woman who just needs a little pick me up after birth.
